What is Coastrek?
The Coastrek is a 30 and 60-kilometre team trekking challenge to raise money to restore sight.
Trekkers fundraise and raise money to help eliminate avoidable blindness by walking along some of Australia’s most beautiful coastlines.
Sydney Coastrek is an annual event supporting the Fred Hollows Foundation and allows the Foundation to continue its vital work to end avoidable blindness.
The trek, starting at sunrise, took our team of four “Angels” through pristine national parks, secret coves, stunning beaches and over Sydney’s Harbour Bridge and past other iconic landmarks.
The trek was 30km from Rushcutters Bay to Tania Park near Manly Beach and thankfully we couldn’t have asked for better weather.
The BOSS Team
The four girls spent 12 weeks training with regular Sunday morning long distance walks along the Brisbane River which did not really prepare us very well for the ups and downs of a coastal walk and our tracking devices on the day registered around 36 kilometres.
It was a great achievement to complete the trek and raise money for this worthy cause.
